We met Dvir for a half day tour of the Jewish Ghetto . We are so glad that we came a day early for our tour of China with the express purpose of taking this tour. Dvir was extremely knowledgeable and gave a thorough lecture in which you learn so much. We started at the Bund prior to going to the Jewish quarter and the logistics were smooth. I highly recommend this tour.
